I have never heard of a sitting president having to prove he is an American. This nonsense has got to stop. I don’t care if it is motivated by racism or just dislike of his policies. If we don’t stop the personal attacks and stick to the real issues and challenges facing this country, we are all going to lose what it means to be an American.

    Considering what Washington considers the real issues and challenges, I’m glad we have gridlock. It could be a lot worse.

    The system we designed for gridlock, the House hasty, the Senate deliberate and the Executive the fail/safe. The American dream has become winning the Lottery or screwing someone out of their lottery winnings or screwing them out of their hard earned savings and making them dream of winning the lottery. We really need to get rid of “suppy side” government policies. Obama ran on that, that’s why I voted for him. Too bad Congress hasn’t mustered the will to do it quicker.

    While the Senate was designed to be the deliberative chamber, one could argue that is no longer the case. Specifically, prior to the 17th Amendment, Senators were not directly elected under the premise that members of the state legislatures were more qualified to judge the merits of candidates for such an esteemed position. The ideal is that this held Senate elections above the muck of normal elections, and they wouldn’t have to pander to the base.

    While there are differences between the House and Senate rules, the two chambers are becoming more and more alike, with the term being the primary difference. I kind of wonder how things would be different if we no longer had direct election of Senators.

    This has got to be terribly insulting to Republican leaders. I mean, if Democrats think Republican leadership are idiots, no big surprise. However, it is REPUBLICANS that think their leadership is so downright stupid that they lost the presidential election to an ineligible candidate and didn’t even bother to file a protest or lawsuit of any kind.
